Even before the race to the flagstaff house pick steam, Ankobeahene of Akwapim Atisease Nana Abedi I, is advocating a coalition of all opposition parties in the country to wrestle power from John Dramani Mahama led National Democratic Congress (NDC) administration come November 7, 2016.

Nana Abedi I who called into News and Current Affairs program Ghana Dadwen on Onua fm expressed disgust over what he termed penchant of opposition parties, especially the smaller ones who will not come together and help the New Patriotic Party to remove the NDC government but rather turn to critic the NPP and Nana Addo.

He said he was forced to call into the program following incessant of attacks launched on the person of Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Ado and the NPP by a Communicator of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP) Isaac Conduah who was one of the panelists on Ghana Dadwen hosted by Bright Kwesi Asempa. “I always listen to your program and I get worried that the smaller parties will not form a coalition to remove the NDC but turn to fight the NPP rather.

I thought it is NDC that they have to fight, why should they turn against each other” the Ankobeahene opined.

“Asempa, I am 71 years old and I know things are not going on well. There are deprivations and disappointment everywhere so I know what I am talking about. Things have become expensive, now it is no more it was my father who sent me to school but students are now giving the glory to their mothers because men have become almost nothing in the home” Ankobeahene of Akwapim Atisease Nana Abedi I lamented, after he was asked why he was sounding political.

Recently, some chiefs have received public bashing and excoriation for certain comments they have made publicly when the President His Excellency John Dramani Mahama was on his Accounting to People Tour.

The Paramount Chief of Kwahu in the Eastern region Nana Asiedu Agyeman III who is also the Abetifi and Adontenhene of Kwahu Traditional Council was alleged to have endorsed the 2nd term bid of President Mahama and the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) when the president visited the area while touring the Eastern region.

An allegation he subsequently denied. Nana Bosoma Asor Nkrawiri II, Paramount Chief of the Sunyani has also received his share of public condemnation for saying that National Democratic Congress would win the 2016 general election. Nana Nkrawiri allegedly forecasted 70 to 80 per cent victory for President John Dramani Mahama’s led National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the region.

Meanwhile what is not clear is how the ruling NDC and President Mahama will see the latest comment coming from a traditional ruler.
